Book Blogger Hop
The Paperback Princesses/Crazy-for-Books have given us a very interesting question for the Hop this week. "When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?" I struggled with this in July. I almost didn’t finish the book. I also discussed this with another blogger recently, but I can’t seem to remember who… Sorry.
Even though I believe that if you’re not enjoying a book, you should have the freedom to put it down and move on, I find it difficult for myself to put it into practice. I feel like, if it’s been published, there has to be a reason. If I just read a few more pages, it’ll get better. I’ve deluded myself more than once. I once read an entire book to the end and only liked one chapter and that chapter had almost nothing to do with the actual plot. There have been a couple books I’ve actually given up on, though I hope to try again another day. Am I deluding myself again? I don’t know. So, while most of the time I do stick it out until the end, I don’t always think it’s worth it.
